Freezing cooked veggies and beans for example.  Blanched and frozen veggies yes, canned cooked beans yes.  There's a best method for each type of food.  Sometimes blogs like these forgo the best methods for their own convenient methods.

Well I thought I saw it there.  Maybe it was another similiar blog.

So while we're on the subject, you don't see anything wrong with freezing cooked black beans in a jar? Because I just made a huge batch and will most likely need to freeze some of it.... and if I can avoid plastic I'd rather avoid it.

Why didn't you just can the beans?  I suppose if you've already cooked them and need them preserved a long time then you really have no choice.

I have zero experience at canning... that'll be a new horizon to explore, one of those days. I cooked them 2 days ago and they are sitting in the fridge, I'm concerned that they are not being used up fast enough...
